Visit @APrivateIsland #CayoEspanto off the coast of San Pedro #Belize #WannaGetAway #NoCriticsJustArtists

 

The country of Belize lies on the eastern coastline of Central America, below Mexico and next to Guatemala. It is a small, stable country covered with exotic rain forests and some of the longest white sand beaches in the world.
Just off Belize’s 280 kilometer Caribbean coastline is the second largest barrier reef in the world, along with a network of over 200 coral cays and atolls. Tropical Fish of every imaginable populate the placid aquamarine waters off the coast. Gentle Nurse Sharks average 4-6 feet in length and dive masters often feed them small fish. Rays, which have a “wing span” of 2-4 feet, swim directly towards the divers. Tourists will have great delight in the Manatee, Grouper, Snapper and all of the other marine life. Most of the creatures in this area have great tolerance for divers and seem to enjoy human interaction.
Visit the excavated remains of the ancient cities of Altun Ha and Lamanai, which attest to the wealth and sophistication of the Mayans’ glorious past. Near the Guatemalan border, the Cayo region encompasses nature sanctuaries, the majestic Hidden Valley Falls, the lively town of San Ignacio and many splendid Mayan ruins. Some Travelers have claimed to have experienced nirvana from the summit of the main pyramid of Xunantunich, which offers a sweeping vista of the Mopan Valley and Guatemala.
Like most of the Yucatan Peninsula, Belize was part of the Mayan Kingdom from 300 B.C. to 900 A.D. Close by in Belize’s Inland, ruins of the vast Mayan civilization protrude from the depths of the rain forests. Spanish Conquistadors arrived in the 16th Century but were lured away by the immense quantities of gold found in Mexico, making room for the British to move in. Though Belize gained its independence in 1981, English is still the official language and elements of the British culture are still intermingled with those of the Caribbean.
Getting to Belize is easier and faster than traveling to most any other major Caribbean destination. On the mainland, there is plenty to experience and explore in this eco tourism-friendly country – Mayan ruins, the Jaguar Preserve, countless birding expeditions, and world-class scuba diving and snorkeling. But with little effort – a 20-minute plane ride to Ambergris Caye and a 3-mile boat ride – you can bask in beauty and end-of-the-world-style luxury at Cayo Espanto resort.

DANDELION

Sculpture végétale réalisée dans le cadre de la série Dandelion.

Grappe de raisins noirs, aigrettes de pissenlit, lotus, perles de verre, clous

Pavot, aigrettes de pissenlit, perles de verre, nacre, clous.

La série Dandelion est le fruit d’une rencontre créative entre la photographeIsabelle Chapuis et le plasticien végétal Duy Anh Nhan Duc. L’une passionnée de matière chrysalide, l’autre obsédé par le végétal, nulle surprise que leur première collaboration a donné vie à une création onirique autour d’un végétal insaisissable: le fragile pissenlit.

Publication dans RAISE Magazine #16 Light Issue, BLINK Magazine, Bon Fluidos Brésil, Design Magazine et DPI Magazine Taïwan.

Dandelion The series is the result of a creative encounter between photographer Isabelle Chapuis and vegetable plastic Duy Anh Nhan Duc. The passionate chrysalis matter, the other obsessed with plants, no surprise that their first collaboration has given life to a dream-like setting around an elusive plant: the fragile dandelion.

Meet ^conscious^ Japanese-American Fine Artist, @MasamiTeraoka #NoCriticsJustArtists #JapaneseArtists #AsianArt

Masami Teraoka
Waves, 1986, watercolor on canvas, 49” x 131.5”
Los Angeles (USA) Sushi Series / Shoga Woman, 1982, watercolor on paper, 14.25” x 21.5”

About feature image: 31 Flavors Invading Japan Series / Today’s Special, 1982, 35-color woodblock print with hand-watercolor, Edition of 500      While most of Masami’s art is watercolor painting on paper or canvas, he has a limited number of works done by various printmaking processes. His only true woodblock print in the Ukiyo-e process are the 31 Flavors Invading Japan/Today’s Special(1982) and the Sarah and Octopus/ Seventh Heaven (2001). Four “Hawaii Snorkel Series” Prints from Tyler Graphics in 1993 combined western etching with contemporary Japanese woodblock techniques. Other than these, a handful of lithographs and etchings complete Teraoka’s forays into the print medium.

Feature Image: KREITAJARO

Kreitajaro is to reflect on the bonds that make us universal. Through the microscope and magnifying glass, one can transform an empirical object into a cosmic place, inhabited by characters who meditate in peace and harmony, free of all cultural symbol. Kreitajaro is to stop the time in a moment when everything moves fast. It is to become still, to breathe, to observe and ask oneself about what does not have an answer. It is the search for a truth, for a beginning. Kreitajaro is a non-scientific way to give answers in a photographic format
